Divine Intervention?

Have any of you experienced this?

This has happened a few times in recent history, one time being that we were about to go out and found that we had a flat tyre. As a result, we couldn't drive to town.

The following day there was a report of a serious car crash on the road we would have taken at the same time we would have been driving on it.

Maybe it was just a coincidence and we'd have been fine, but it makes you wonder...

Being a Christian, I of course put this down to God, but even if it is just as simple as "luck", I do believe these things happen every day.

I know a chap called Devine, and when he intervenes it usually ends up in dirty/childish humour :D

But yes, I have had similar experiences.

I don't have time to share now - but I will later!!

I know another lad from Devon and it's his job to intervene 馃榾馃殧

I've had a potentially very serious car crash years ago, the first vehicle that stopped was an ambulance and I ended up facing the opposite direction on a mountain road in south Wales (afan valley road if anyone is interested), I was also perched on the fence over the drop on the other side back wheel halfway up the fence post. I still thank my lucky stars for that and wonder why I'm still here, my daughter (who was also in the car) still has nightmares about that crash

I believe after that when your numbers up that's it, if not luck will assist in every way possible

I know a Dave Vine and when he intervenes, you probably wish he hadn't, particularly if it was your house that was refused permission

He's a planning officer

You are 100% right Laurie. Bad things happen but if God wants you to stay on this earth you will do so by any means possible. If not, then no amount of avoidance will change it.

A certain 2007 film starring Sandra Bullock proves that!!

We were meant to go to Shoreham on the day of the Air show crash. we were planning on going at lunchtime and waiting by the airfield for the Vulcan. Didn't go in the end as other plans got in the way. Scary to think where we were planning on standing is right where the Hawker Hunter came down...

My dad's boss was meant to be on the Pan Am 747 that blew up over Lockerbie. He couldn't make it due to work so went to the US the next day by Concorde. Bet he was counting his lucky stars!

Not me personally, my late uncle experienced something like that

Back in 1942, when my late uncle was a navigator in the RAF, on the bombers.

He and his squadron, were literally waiting for the off, for a bombing run over North Africa. When he was suddenly summoned back by his CO to go on a different operation, where his specialist engineering skills were needed

His squadron got their clearance and went. They were all shot down and killed in action: nobody came back

Yep, that's what I'm talkin' about.

It's things like that that make you believe that there has to be "something" out there.

It is so easy to find such things traumatising these days as people simply don't have the experiences that their ancestors did to put things into perspective.

I find it very hard to see anything in a positive light (thanks to mental illness) but never do I moan outwardly about trivial matters. People have much bigger problems to deal with.

There are people I know who would happily complain about their tickly cough to someone who is terminally ill.

Not quite sure it was luck, but this could have ended badly when walking to the kitchen after 3 glasses of wine...

My garage is full of potential hazards like that!

It's becoming quite an adventure to go to the big freezers, what objects might I trip/fall over when getting Brandy's chicken/spare bread/last season beans. :lol:

I keep meaning to have a sort out: but don't :mellow:

It's just a miracle that I look down when I walk, or else I could have had an "up close" inspection of the linoleum :lol:

Right - got time now lol

When I was in 6th Form, a girl was knocked down and killed near the college (she was in my tutor group, but I didn't really know her).

I was well known for running 2-3 minutes late of a morning. That morning, for once I was actually ready to go early!

Can't remember why, but I still ended up leaving home 5 minutes late.

If I'd left when I was ready that morning, I would have been at the mini-roundabout at the same time she was killed. It could have been my head under the trucks wheels!!

I have had less potential fatal events, even down to the kids delaying me getting out of the house on the morning by about 30 seconds, on some occasions, I have seen crashes about 20-30 seconds ahead of me. Those occasions I think I was lucky, but its of a similar nature.

There are also occasions where outside of driving, certain things happened, and then were abandoned. As a result of that, its made my life today a lot easier I guess...
